Year 5 Week 25 2015

With only two weeks of term left before the summer holiday, we are beginning to think ahead to the new academic year and the children who are staying had the opportunity to meet their new Year 6 teacher during transition morning this week. They all had a lovely morning with their new teachers and, as part of the morning activities, showcased their art skills by drawing a self-portrait to go on the new ‘The Faces of Bielefeld School’ notice board.

In English, the children used the plan we wrote last week for catching a Cyber Gremlin to write the first three sections of a set of instructions. They focused particularly on writing an introduction that included rhetorical questions to ‘hook’ the reader. Staying with the theme of instructions, their homework is to write a set of instructions for packing their bag for the Year 5 Camp next week (see below). We hope this will help to prepare them for our adventures next week!

In maths, Mrs Scannell’s group have compared and added related fractions. Mrs Hood’s group have drawn and interpreted charts, pictograms and line graphs.

Remember that it is the Year 5 camp next week from 9 – 10 July! If the kit list has been misplaced, please find a new one in your child’s English homework folder.

Homework
Unless otherwise stated, all homework should be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday.

English The children should plan and write a set of instructions for packing their bag for the Year 5 camp.  A boxed up plan template and a copy of the kit list are in their homework folder. We have challenged the children to write three amusing rhetorical questions as part of their introduction. They will receive 1 smile point for each amusing rhetorical question.

Maths Both groups should complete the challenges set in their homework books.  

Spelling The spelling list was sent home on Tuesday. Spelling homework should be completed and returned on Monday.

Thank you for your continued support.
Have a great weekend!
